Global Youth & Family Ministry
Who We Are
The GYFM exists to serve the global church by engaging the emerging generation with the gospel across North America and around the world.
Our mission is to encourage and equip youth and their families around the world to KNOW Christ's love for them, GROW in relationship with Christ and His people, and GO as agents of His grace in kingdom living.
Ministering to Missionaries and Third Culture Kids:
- Supporting and celebrating TCKs and their families through the unique opportunities and challenges of adolescence and the TCK experience.
- Enlisting churches and individuals to pray, participate, and partner with the ministry.
- Facilitating retreats, conferences, and mission trips as opportunities for missionary kids to be together, be known, and to experience the love of God through redemptive relationships, authentic worship, and engaging God's Word.
- Educating, equipping, and encouraging MTW departments, leadership, and parents in reaching the next generation.
Ministering through MTW to establish youth ministry movements around the world by:
- Developing strategic partnerships with agencies, churches, organizations, institutions.
- Mobilizing global youth ministers to serve as catalysts, resources, and leaders in youth and family ministry across North America and around the world.
- Equipping national leaders and indigenous churches as they reach the next generation in their context, establishing youth ministry movements in communities around the world.
